1 Welcome to Launceston
Your holiday begins in Launceston, situated on the Tamar River. Tasmania’s ‘northern capital’ is a historic city with many well-preserved Georgian and Victorian buildings. This evening, get to know your Travel Director and fellow travellers with a Welcome Reception at your hotel. Stay: Best Western Plus Launceston
2 Launceston – Bicheno
Bridestowe Lavender Estate, producer of high-quality lavender since 1922, is your first stop today. Learn about the history of the estate and treat yourself to some of its famous lavender ice-cream. Later, visit the unique Legerwood Carved Memorial Trees site, and then follow the picturesque east coast south to Bicheno. This evening you might like to take an optional tour to see either Bicheno’s wild penguins as they emerge from the ocean for the night or the iconic Tasmanian Devil. (B/D) Stay: Best Western Beachfront at Bicheno

4 Port Arthur
Today, explore Port Arthur Historic Site, taking a cruise around the Isle of the Dead and a fascinating walk with a local expert of the remains of Port Arthur’s infamous convict prison.

5 Day Tassie's East Coast Highlights reviews from past clients of Global Journeys.

“Great trip but a little short.”
- VIC, Australia Jan 2017

Did this trip with my mother and here is my review, I'll try and write it from both my and my mums perspective. It was great to have everything organised and all the little places to visit that you wouldn't think or know to visit yourself. My mum thoroughly enjoyed it and value for money but I thought it was something I could do for $400 cheaper by hiring a car and organising myself. However as I mentioned the only downside to this is the knowledge. Our guide and drivers were excellent - 10/10, they knew their stuff and we totally enjoyed the commentary at least every hour of some little thing to look out for while travelling along. This is priceless, even the places to stop off along the way have a story or something to see that you just wouldn't know on your own....read more

“A great trip”
- NSW, Australia Jan 2017 1 Helpful Vote

We were not aware that this 4 day trip was part of the 10 day Tasmanian Wonders trip. We joined fellow travellers in Launceston. The trip originated in Hobart 6 days earlier and covered the west coast. We were made very welcome by the other travellers and the tour director once we joined them. The tour director located us in the hotel the night before and introduced himself and gave us lots of information. Fellow travellers spoke of their previous 6 days being an excellent trip....read more

“Only thing we are unhappy about is the shuttle”
- QLD, Australia Feb 2015

Caroline and Tom were really pleasant and helpful and a real pleasure to have met them. They obviously enjoy their jobs and nothing was too much trouble. The only thing we are unhappy about is the attitude with the shuttle. It should not make any difference if we did not use AAT Kings hotels or stayed for an extra day. As a result of this attitude it cost us $30 for the shuttle and $55 for the taxi to the airport. As a result of this we would think very carefully about AAT Kings in future.<...read more

“Thought the pace was slow”
- Australia Nov 2014

I thought the pace was slow, but I'm probably biased because I'm under 30. The sites were good. Transfer to airport at the end was helpful.

“Guide and driver were excellent and we recommend this tour”
- Australia Mar 2014

All up we enjoyed our tour of Tasmania. Would have liked to spend our free time in Hobart closer to the main shopping area instead of near the restaurant area as we had already had lunch at Richmond. Our tour guide and driver were excellent and can recommend this tour. Thanks to Global Journeys and Kirby for their excellent service.
